Musings
First, I love the "jangly" quality of the guitar/mandolin and the steady intervals of the bass line add a very folksy underpinning.

You have lots of room to play with the guitar and mandolin. If you were to pick out the chords with the mandolin in some sections (as opposed to strumming with the guitar) the effect would be very similar to a folk banjo. You could also selectively substitute some chord inversions to lift the register of the mandolin and add texture to the rhythm part here and there.

Regarding the bass, you could add a little melodic theme. Something short, like maybe a measure, that contrasts the vocal melody and works to punctuate the end of phrases. That sort of thing can be a really strong hook.

Sounds awesome!

Thanks for the tips
I will probably go back and add some of those bass fills. I'd like to see what happens with the vocals and other instruments first.

Z know it's probably hard to pick out the mountain dulcimer in this mix, but it's there. I was strumming it only on the off-beats to give the guitar a bit more punch and offset the bass.

Anyway, stay tuned.

Cheers,
Jim

Not sure I'm hearing
the dulcimer - I guess it's doubling the guitar. Might want to try some eq separation by reducing the crossover frequencies (just made up that technical gibberish - but you know what I mean right?)
